Yes, a mosquito fogging treatment can be an effective way to reduce the number of mosquitoes in your yard during mosquito season (March-October). Mosquito fogging involves spraying a pesticide mist that targets adult mosquitoes in outdoor areas where they are known to congregate, such as around trees, shrubs, and other vegetation. The pesticide used in fogging treatments typically kills mosquitoes on contact and provides residual protection for a period of time. Treatments are typically done monthly from March-October for best results.
It’s important to note that mosquito fogging should only be done by a licensed professional like APC who is trained to use the equipment and handle the pesticide safely. While fogging can be an effective way to control mosquitoes, it is not a permanent solution and may need to be repeated monthly to maintain effectiveness.
To help maximize the effectiveness of a mosquito fogging treatment, it’s also important to eliminate potential mosquito breeding sites around your yard, such as standing water in planters, bird baths, or other containers. Additionally, using personal protective measures such as insect repellent and wearing long-sleeved clothing can help reduce your risk of mosquito bites.
